Anyone for Beetle Kebab?
On a walk at Ham Wall nature reserve near Glastonbury, Somerset, I spied this poor beetle impaled by a thistle leaf-spike blowing in the wind whilst it was clambering around. It was a large plant and the leaves were cruelly pointed with sharp spikes. I bet it hadn’t thought it would end it’s days as a kebab! Poor thing! The wildlife was very active that day but the beetle was the one that stuck in my mind the most. A rare sight!!!
